Oh me, Oh my, it's finally arrived

Well, I laid down with my kids today to have a little nap as we've all been under the weather, and when I woke up, my husband was home, and I woke up to see this resting on my laptop (and please ignore all the extra crap in the background!!):
Does that say AMAZON.CA on the corner?!?! Yes! Yes it does! I'm so excited. Let's just pull on this tab here...Oh me, oh my, there she is!! Peeking at me from her hiding place in her cozy little box, which was delayed for some reason on it's trip home to me...Hey there P-dub. Wanna come out and play?My copy of The Pioneer Woman's Cookbook finally arrived today. I pre-ordered this on September 3, as soon as Ree noted on her blog that it was available for pre-order. And let me tell you, I am so glad it has arrived. And this is no ordinary cookbook! Of course she has recipes, some of her favorites from her blog, and some never before posted ones too. But she also included personal stories behind some of the recipes, and their lives on the ranch. And photos.Photos like this one, on a salad page. Typical Ree humour, and I love it. No boring old cookbook here!! And the artwork for the title pages is so...Pioneer Woman. It's like her blog popped off my computer screen and landed on this book.And there are photos of her family, and her "punks" like this one here. There are probably thousands of photos like this one on her blog (ok, well maybe not thousands, but a few) and I love that she included them in her book. It just shows (yet again, if you can't tell from her blog posts by now) that Ree will always put her family first, and without them, this book would never have been. And I love that too.
I also laughed out loud when I saw the last page of her book, but I didn't take a photo of it. It is the epitome of Ree, The Pioneer Woman, and her blog, and it is the reason why I read her blog in the first place, for her humour, her wit, and her outlook on life. If you want to see it, you'll just have to buy your own!! Ree, if you ever stumble across my little corner of blog world, I love your blog, and your book, and you!! You can buy her book on Amazon and other places, and if you've never been to her website, please do yourself a favour and go check it out. You'll be so glad that you did.

Loved the play by play! And that is so funny, because my nick-name is Ree!
